  1. Regardless of admonitions, Al, there are a ton of people around here who do it, and will continue to do so until Shaw is no longer viable here. It's been going on for years, and no one really cares... least of all Shaw (as long as they don't know specifics).
  2. It would help if he kept to his posted hours, instead of opening late half the time and closing early almost all the time. All he needs is a little sign on the door, which would show a courtesy to potential clients, instead of just not showing up. Went three times in the course of two weeks and never got in...
  3. Yes, I'm curious too. Just trolling? Who gets their water tested for radioactivity, anywhere in North America? Maybe in Chernobyl or Japan or folks living by nuclear plants that have melted down... or is it just the people who lean their heads against the CFE meter all day?
  4. Juan Carlos is the owner of both the one in Riberas and out west past San Juan Cosala; he spends most of his time out there, leaving the management here to one of his long-term employees, of which there are several.
  5. Does anyone know how often the Chapala Plus bus runs, and is there one that stops by El Dorito?
  6. So true. In Riberas I lived across from a weekend Tapatio who emptied his rooftop pool every weekend. It poured onto the street for hours. And there are laws forbidding exactly that.
  7. Right, a CURP is just an identification number... originally supposed to be something loosely like a social security number, I believe? Remember when everyone had to get one, to buy a cell phone, and people were using Felipe Calderon's name...
  8. Huawei is the better brand right now, but it is still prone to damage... too bad, was hoping you'd say Technicolor. Just yesterday I had a gal who couldn't get onto her Chase site, no matter what we did. It would work one time only. She traded in her modem and now everything is hunky dorey. Anyway, just one option.
  9. So they are sending a tech, right? It often comes down to cabling, especially during the rainy.
  10. My Internet has gone off around midnight or so for the past two nights. Other than that, during the day, not seeing any difficulties. I am in Riberas about two blocks from Mom's restaurant toward the lake. Aquaponicsman, check and see if you have a Technicolor-brand modem. These regularly exhibit this drop-off behaviour, and need to be exchanged. (I had two in a row, both doing the same thing after a week.) Failing that, you should contact Mexico City tech support at the previously mentioned number, because overall there are currently no generalized problems in this area of which I am aware.
  11. Don't bother going to the office. Instead call Mexico City tech support at 01-800-123-2222, and ask for someone with English. They are far better equipped. Our guys here in Ajijic know nothing, see nothing, do nothing. Trust me on this. And it's not the servers, it's the infracstructure here.
  12. Relax, kiddo. Just trying to keep it light.
  13. What's probably the biggest cause of indigestion and other innards issues? Stressing out too much, over things like homeopathic options...
  14. Sorry, I can't seem to find room after taking in all that coconut oil, probiotic yogurt, kombucha tea, soy and almond milk, microalgae, and tempeh while doing my reiki. Oh, wait, I don't have any trouble digesting foods. I guess then I should just switch to a different diet: maybe the zone, the south beach, the Mediterranean, or raw foodism.
  15. Kefir grains at the grain/seed/spice shop beside Gossips restaurant this very day, across from Clinica Ajijic.
  16. Because he farms the extra work out, but in my 10 years of going there, the extra maybe 8 bucks has made it worth my while.. especially when they come and pick me up after.
  17. You need a guy like Tony or Escalera, because you'll want them balanced. Corner guys don't do that properly.
  18. Must have walked by it several times. Thanks; I'll check again. And RV: right: you find me a clerk, and I'll ask.
  19. But that's NOB thinking. I'd like to know where it's actually been seen at WalMart, because I just scoured that section moments ago. Now, being a male, it's quite possible that I can't see the obvious, just like when I'm looking in the fridge. I can go to a local abarrote, but I'd like to know for those times when I don't want to hit two stores.
  20. Man, I just walked all over the WalMart looking for BacDyn or MicroDyn. Anyone know for sure where they hide it?
  21. This is exactly why I mentioned the armrests. God only knows what's on those, so unless you bring paper towels into the theatre, forget trying to keep clean by towelling the door handles...
  22. Don't forget those armrests at the movie theatre and ballet... forget the darned bathroom door handles!
